|Top 10 New Releases on Blu Ray|
Blu-ray10.evjoy.com : October 22nd, 2009 - Welcome!
This week: The most eclectic mix in months. Travel from exotic India to neighborly New Orleans by hog (that's a lot of water to cross), then turn south - you'll come up for air in the 'Land of the Lost'. Dig into four Halloween fright-night favorites if your eyes can stay open. The week's hi-def concert mêlée is just as diverse... Leonard Cohen vs. Eminem? Hmmm, Mathers' got the madness, but Cohen's got the karma...
Monsoon Wedding [Criterion Collection] ~ (2009)
"...spins a web of family relationships that knit and break... excellent performances, & director Mira Nair's eye for the unnoticed is at its best. Handheld camera gives a docudrama feel to this film about at an upper-middle-class Hindu Punjabi joint family, paying tribute to modern Indian music, TV, and Bollywood." 5 stars.
Easy Rider ~ Peter Fonda, Dennis Hopper, Antonio Mendoza, (189)
Jack Nicholson (2009)
"One of the ten most important pictures of the (60's) decade." -Time Magazine
. Uncensored counterculture; a compelling mix of drugs, sex, & politics. Jack Nicholson's an alcoholic attorney who hooks up with two part-time, drug-dealing bikers in search of the American Dream. From California to New Orleans, they sample the highs and lows of America in a stoned-out quest for life's true meaning. Ageless stuff with a heavy, heavy ending. Not to be missed.
Waterworld ~ (6)
Kevin Costner, Dennis Hopper (2009)
If you understand the potential of this film (it has lots), best wait for a hyper-extended cut; maybe even a 4-hr unedited version - which may be released sometime before the polar ice caps completely melt.
